Rio de Janeiro

— 4 nights

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Step out of the city life by going to Copacabana Beach and Pedra do Arpoador. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Morro Dois Irmaos and Vermelha Beach. Take a break from Rio de Janeiro with a short trip to Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra in Niteroi, about 50 minutes away. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Praia de Ipanema, contemplate the waterfront views at Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, take an in-depth tour of Forte de Copacabana, and enjoy some music at Caixa Cultural Rio.

In December, daytime highs in Rio de Janeiro are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 27°C.
